  1. Restart, then hold down shift while choosing Internet > Check for updates in ComicBase. Click Yes when asked whether you want to download it again. (Guessing you had some sort of problem with the download--it seems to work fine here). Let us know if you're stuck. -Pete
  2. Make sure you exit the program, then try again. If you get any sort of error message when exiting/closing, let us know. (Basically, it had trouble creating the temporary tables used to update). Be sure to also download the very latest build. -Pete
  3. It looks like you copied your pix to the wrong folder--basically, whatever folder you specified in File > File Tools > Manage Pictures and Movies is not the same as where your pictures are at, so only the new pictures you're interacting with (and auto-downloading) are appearing. Keep in mind: the location specified for that folder is the folder which _contains_ the Pictures folder, not the pictures folder itself. If in doubt, click the "Reset" button, and move your pictures into the <Public Documents>\Human Computing folder on your computer. -Pete
  4. The sales log is unchanged--you'll just need to pull up the log file in question (log files are now located in <documents>\Human Computing\Logs
  5. One point of clarification: There's both a Sales Report (which I think is what you were screen shotting--don't see the whole page so not sure). There's also a sales log file. Were you thinking of that one?
  6. Seems to be working properly in build 2298. Can you retest/confirm? -Pete
  7. There's a computed search key which is based on the original term, stripped of diacriticals, and both é and ú are included in the translation (to "e" and "u", respectively) when computing it. If you get a chance, do a File > File Tools > Rebuild Lists of your issue and storyline/contributors to force it to rebuild this (some older versions of the name may have slipped in, can compromise the auto-select list based on the "dumbed down" version of the name with the down-translated diacritical versions.) Worth noting: As we flesh out support (and as awareness grows) for the proper use of diacriticals, we're going to be going through some growing pains as we get the proper versions of each diacritical-heavy creator to take their place as the authoritative version for updates' sake. (I'll bore everyone silly with the long version of this story on a livestream sometime--"everything you never wanted to know about UTF-8 Collations on SQL Server" or the like... 😉) Finally as we progress into Unicode-land (the original table was based off of Windows Western diacriticals), we're adding more entries to the table, (e.g. ē, ). If you notice one's we're not handling properly, please call them out. -Pete
  8. Right-click on the picture in question to see: 1. Do you _have_ a larger version to show?, and 2. Where is it located (is it on your SSD?) If it's somewhere else, check the location of your pictures in movies (under File > File Tools > Manage Pictures and Movies), as well as whether you have it set to automatically download larger versions.
  9. The behavior is actually as intended. If you double-click to edit a line, the wait cursor you see after saving is just the saving/indexing of that issue. It doesn't re-perform the search (and isn't meant to--doing so would be SLOW).
  10. Sugar Cookie Martini (adapted from Wholefully) Tastes like a sugar cookie with a slight hint of almond/apricot from the Amaretto. Delicious, but loaded with calories, so save these for a special occasion! Ingredients: - Vanilla frosting and sprinkles for rimming the glass... OR... Regular sugar (or green/red colored sugar if you're feeling festive). Pro tip: Double all the following to serve two drinks out of the same shaker (After all, who wants to drink alone?) - 1.5 oz Vanilla vodka - 1.5 oz Irish cream - 2 oz. whole milk (1/4 cup) - 3/4 oz Amaretto - 1 tsp. powdered sugar (can be omitted to drop a few calories if you like) - Ice Steps 1. EITHER: - Rim the glass with frosting/red/green sprinkles. Yes, this seems insane, but the drink really needs this hit of sweetness. So if you choose to not do frosting, at least... - Wet the edge of the glass with water, then briefly dip it into a plate with sugar on it to rim the glass. Use red/green colored sugar if available for a more festive look. 2. In a cocktail shaker loaded with ice, add the vanilla vodka, Irish cream, milk, amaretto, powdered sugar, and ice. Close the lid and shake vigorously for at least 15 seconds 3. Pour into the sugar or frosting-rimmed glass and enjoy!
  11. Make sure you actually run the installer for the new version, then launch that version. You can always download the latest software under My Account >Registrations. Probably a good idea to also clean up any older versions of ComicBase you have lying around under Windows' Add & Remove Programs as well. -Pete
  12. Try the current build. It should be fixed.
  13. Looks like the "update price history to match current price box is being overlaid by the "update prices" box. Will investigate. what's your screen magnification set to (under your Display properties?
  14. Make sure the pixel dimensions of the ones you're trying to save are larger than the ones we have on file. You might want to open the images, check their DPI settings, then re-save them: I've seen at least one case where something about the JPEG header was incorrect so they appeared to be smaller than they should have. So long as the height and width in pixels are larger than the ones we have, they won't get replaced--even if you have "replace smaller covers" checked in your preferences. -Pete
  15. The best way to go with this is to do a File > File Tools > Rebuild Lists / Picture Information. Typically the problem is caused by your stored picture dimensions in your db saying that the picture you've got is smaller than the one on the server. Doing this forces an update of all your saved picture data.
